SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Bad call by DI

This is in regard to the article titled "Game Over Not Quite" printed on Sept. 16 and written by Seth Roberts. I would like to convey my absolute disgust and dismay at not only the content of the article but particularly the vulgar and inappropriate language.

As parent and Hawkeye fan whose child (age 10) closely follows Hawkeye sports, I am disappointed that such a negative message with an incredible use of inappropriate language would be printed. As my child inquired about what a "faggot" is, I was appalled that The Daily Iowan would print such material.

In the future I would request that you be more cognizant of your audience and understand that true Hawkeye fans come as every age and thus the language should be as such. Your message of disappointment could have been conveyed without such badly chosen words. Whether the words were a direct quote or not, it is unnecessary and unprofessional for the DI to associate itself with such opinions and vocabulary.
